The orioles are back! As I understand it, when they are raising their chicks they switch to a more insect-based diet and forsake the fruit and the grape jelly. They certainly haven't been coming to the bird feeder, although the occasional orange flash could seen, zipping across the yard. Maybe the kids are ready for grown up food now - there were orange birds all over this orange slice as soon as I put it out.
